Movies Referenced in the theme song of the Rocky Horror Picture Show

Michael Rennie was ill the day the Earth stood still
Michael Rennie played the alien in The Day the Earth Stood Still
But he told us where we stand
And Flash Gordon was there in silver underwear
Buster Crabbe starred in Flash Gordon
Claude Raines was the invisible man

Claude Raines was the Invisible Man
Then something went wrong for Fay Wray and King Kong

King Kong
They got caught in a celluloid jam

Then at a deadly pace it came from outer space
It Came From Outer Space
And this is how the message ran:

Science Fiction – Double Feature
Dr. X will build a creature
See androids fighting Brad and Janet
Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet
Forbidden Planet
Oh-oh at the late night, double feature, picture show.

I knew Leo G. Carroll was over a barrel
When Tarantula took to the hills
And I really got hot when I saw Janet Scott
Fight a Triffid that spits poison and kills
Day of the Triffids
Dana Andrews said prunes gave him the runes
And passing them used lots of skills
Night of the Demon
But when worlds collide, said George Pal to his bride
When Worlds Collide
